‘All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain’-  Blade Runner

Movies and Books are a match made in heaven! Time to enjoy inspiring and thought-provoking movie quotes.

It is such a liberating realization that after many years of our friendship, my friend still remembers how I react while watching a comedy movie. I am guilty of clapping hard and falling off the chair and spend next few weeks feeling embarrassed. I am not ashamed of that lame poop joke that still makes me laugh. You know what – I really don’t care!  Because let’s be real, you enjoy something you will express it. No matter how weird it is.  Sometimes movie dialogues are so inspiring that you just want to print and keep it on your desktop.  Let’s “Pin It” on our vision boards or quote boards! So, here is #thecrazylist of movie quotes that will sparkle your vision board with love and inspiration. Well, that accounts for 17 Hollywood movie quotes on love, life and success.
